My teacher is the strangest one
cause she says math is really fun.
She smiles when adding on the board
just like each number is adored.
In lots of ways, I think it’s sad
her sense of fun is just so bad.
Three plus three and eight plus eight
are no fun —I’d sooner skate.
I’d sooner play some basketball.
I’d sooner walk around a mall.
I’d sooner watch a TV show.
I’d sooner play outside in snow.
I’d sooner never have to add.
Subtraction makes me just feel bad.
Division is the worst thing yet,
and multiplying — I don’t get!
“To each his own,” my mother said,
but still math makes me scratch my head.
I’m sure most people think like me;
“Math’s no fun,” they would agree.
Possibly, my teacher’s not
as crazy as I’ve maybe thought.
About this, I suspect I’m right.
She’s said she bowls on Friday night.
